Bisys Commercial Insurance Services, a leading provider of commercial property and casualty insurance solutions, today announced its acquisition of Truckwriters, an Atlanta based managing general agency owned by and writing business with Zurich Programs, a business unit of Zurich North America Commercial.
Truckwriters will become part of BISYS' managing general agent (MGA) operations, BISYS Specialty Programs, a leading writer of trucking and transportation risks nationwide. The acquisition expands BISYS' already comprehensive product line and includes a new market relationship and new niche client relationships.
David Tooley, president of BISYS Specialty Programs said, "The acquisition of Truckwriters brings us a new team of underwriting specialists in transportation risks as well as the ability to write coverage for classes of business we have not been able to address in the past."
Located in Alpharetta, GA, Truckwriters was established in 1993. A full service MGA, Truckwriters offers a broad spectrum of property and casualty lines of coverages as well as specialty lines such as accident and health, complementing BISYS Specialty Programs' existing business. "We are excited about the business opportunities brought by the market relationship with Zurich, the Truckwriters team, and its partner agents. We look forward to strengthening our leadership position in the transportation insurance segment," said Mike Oliver, senior vice president of the BISYS Trucking Program.
